'Dead man’ wakes up before burial

LUCKNOW, Uttar Pradesh: A man pronounced dead by doctors at a hospital on Monday "woke up" as preparations were being made for his funeral.
 
In a scene that seemed straight out of a movie, relatives were preparing the final rites when the body of a man, identified as Mohamamd Furqan, 20, arrived at home at the C Block in Indiranagar.
 
Sobs could be heard when the ambulance came, according to Indian media reports. 
 
Then, relatives and mourners saw Furqan's body started moving as it was being taken out. This turned their grief to utter astonishment.
 
 
Mohammad Furqan was involved in an accident on Sultanpur Road on June 21. He was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Niralanagar and was  on life support.
 
"The hospital...started charging us huge fees," Furqan's elder brother Irfan narrated their ordeal to the Times of India. "We paid Rs7 lakhs (about $10,150). And when we informed the hospital that we had run out of money, they declared Furqan dead on Monday (July 1)," his brother Mohammad Irfan told the paper.
 
"When we took the body home, a family member noticed that he was breathing. Others standing there also saw limb movement. We then rushed him to RML (Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Combined hospital) immediately," he added.
 
Alive
 
Doctors at RML found Furqan to be alive and immediately put him on oxygen support.
 
But due to the unavailability of a ventilator, he was later moved to a private medical facility in Indira Nagar.
Dr Ashok Nirala, the doctor treating Furqan at the private medical facility, told the TOI: "The patient is in critical condition, but definitely not brain dead."
"He has a pulse, blood pressure and his reflexes are working. He has been put on ventilator support."
Chief medical officer (CMO) of Lucknow, Dr Narendra Agarwal told TOI: “We have taken cognizance of the incident and the matter will be thoroughly probed.”
